Watch Advantages

  1. Seiko are well known for making high quality affordable watches
  2. Day and date display which is a nice addition.
  3. Automatic self winding movement meaning it doesn’t require batteries to be changed, this saves time and money.
  4. 30m water resistance, suitable for everyday use. Splash/rain resistant. Not suitable for showering, bathing, swimming, snorkelling, water related work and fishing.

Watch Disadvantages 

  1. With a 37mm case this Seiko is smaller than a lot of popular watches you see these days that use a 40+mm case
  2. If left unworn for a few days the watch will need to be wound up again, this is simple to do and a common issue but some people don’t realise this happens.

My Final Thoughts:

Seiko SNXS79K watch is one of my favourite from the Seiko 5 series. They really have created a very nice, smart classic watch. The automatic movement is something I really like in watches, I just think it’s a great idea to no longer require battery changes, even if they aren’t as accurate as a quartz. It may not look as stunning as some other watches but it does it’s job well and offers good value for money.
